Shakespeares Macbeth Macbeth: Writing Patronage THE PLAY WAS WRITTEN FOR KING JAMES I: (1) He was obsessed with demonology, the idea of magic and witches. (2) He experienced the Gun Powder Plot, an assassination attempt. (3) Banquo was written as a good guy since King James was his descendant.
(4) The play was short because he liked short plays NOTE: The real Macbeth, King Duncan, Malcolm, Banquo and Lady Macbeth all lived in the 1000s Beowulfs times! Macbeth: The Curse Supposedly, saying "Macbeth" inside a theater will bring bad luck to the play and anyone acting in it. People actually refer to the play as The Scottish Play or MacB when at the theater WHY IT STARTED: Macbeth:
The Curse Used an authentic 17th century black-magic ritual for the opening scene of Macbeth's Act IV (a sort of how-to for budding witches.) That means he provided his audience with step-bystep instructions of how to create a real spell! As punishment, the witches supposedly cursed the play and its actors. REVERSE The Curse 1)Exit the theater, 2)Spin around three times saying a profanity 3)And then ask for permission to return inside *OR
4) Some believe that you can repeat the words "Thrice around the circle bound, Evil sink into the ground," THE CURSE First Macbeth Performance Ever: Beginning with its first performance, in 1606, Dear Will himself was forced to play Lady Macbeth when Hal Berridge, the boy designated to play the lady, became inexplicably feverish and died. Moreover, the bloody play so displeased King James I that he banned it for five years. Amsterdam, 1672: The actor playing Macbeth substituted a real dagger for the blunted stage one and with it killed Duncan in full view of the entranced audience. Lady Macbeth incidents: Sarah Siddons was nearly ravaged by a disapproving audience in 1775; Sybil Thorndike was almost strangled by a burly actor in 1926; Diana Wynyard sleepwalked off the rostrum
in 1948, falling down 15 feet. New York, 1849: During its performance at New York's Astor Place, a riot broke out in which 31 people were trampled to death. The actor playing Macduff was mugged soon after the play's opening. THE CURSE USA, 1937: When Laurence Olivier took on the role of Macbeth, a 25 pound stage weight crashed within an inch of him, and his sword which broke onstage flew into the audience and hit a man who later suffered a heart attack. 1934: British actor Malcolm Keen turned mute onstage, and his replacement, Alister Sim, like Hal Berridge before him, developed a high fever and had to be hospitalized. 1942: The Macbeth production headed by John Gielgud, three actors -Duncan and two witches -- died, and the costume and set designer committed suicide amidst his devilish Macbeth creations. Bermuda, 1952: Charlton Heston, in an outdoor production, suffered severe burns in his groin and leg area from tights that were accidentally
soaked in kerosene. Recent Years: An actor's strike felled Rip Torn's 1970 production in New York City. Two fires and seven robberies plagued the 1971 version starring David Leary. RENAISSANCE RECAP Shakespeare Globe Queen King The Theater Elizabeth James I
